A Lovely Day, A Lovely January Finish

Lovely Day, Lovely FinishI finished stitching down the binding on the plaid zig-zag mystery quilt Sunday night and it was such a beautiful sunny day on Monday, I thought to take it outside for a photo.

Of course, Johnny protested that I was outside in his territory without him.

Johnny asks, "What about me?"

It was perfectly calm UNTIL I hung the quilt over the wall of the upstairs deck ... I waited until the wind died down enough for the quilt to become mostly flat again. Here it is again, from a different perspective.


A different perspective

I'll be linking this post to the finishes party for A Lovely Year of Finishes later this month.

It is beautiful. I love the pop of color in the binding. Yep the same thing happens to me it can be very calm and the moment I try to take a photo of a quilt the wind kicks up.

Love the photography! I wish I had an upstairs adobe deck........

Great finish. I love the binding. It seems to reflect the plaid. I'm sure that wasn't a fluke.
Hugs

I love zigzag quilts. I've made two and love them both. I like your use of plaids.

What a great shot of your quilt hanging up there- you couldn't have chosen such a better colour than your adobe deck walls to hang it.

Love the scattered plaid colors. It looks great up close or far away. I miss that kind of architecture. And that color of sky. It's a more washed out blue here. Different latitude, I suppose. Congratulations on your lovely finish.

A great finish, Sophie. Being out in the sun made it look brighter. That was a nice setting you used. Thanks for linking to WIPs Be Gone. I like to see finishes, too as that WIP is Gone!
